Mr. Wigglesworth gave us this morning a private lecture, and Mr. Williams had a public
one, in the afternoon. Bridge and Freeman went over after dinner to attend an exhibition
of Cushman's school in Mystic.1
I could not go. Mr. Thaxter and Mr. Duncan, were here a few minutes; they came from
Haverhill this morning. I made tea for the club this evening, and I believe it will
be for the last Time. It is too troublesome to return so frequently as once a week,
and there are only 9 or 10 now left. Was part of the evening at Mason's chamber and
supp'd with him there.
